6:09 pm
responsible. discussing the human rights response, north korea refused to attend that meeting. kristin saloomey joins us live from the u.n. what can you tell us. >> well the problems apparently started over the weekend, but now the internet in north korea is reportedly completely down. of course, there is a very small internet presence in that country confined mostly to the elites but it is not working at all. and this of course just days after president obama threatened to retaliate against north korea for that hack on sony pictures entertainment, which he blamed on north korea of course. but he never said exactly how the united states would recontaminate 88th, only that it would be -- re-- retaliate, only that it would be proportional the uniteproportio.
6:10 pm
the main lan which they called a cesspool of terrorism, because the united states had accused them of doing this hack. so back and forth but the state department as you mentioned will not confirm whether or not the united states is behind that outage. have a listen. >> as the president said we are considering a range of options in response. we aren't going to discuss publicly operational details about the possible response options or comments on those kinds of reports in any way. except to say that as we implement our responses some will be seen, some may not be seen. >> now michael experts say there could be other reasons for that outage but the timing certainly does seem a bit suspicious. >> suspicious to say the least. on the issue of human rights what is the significance kristin of this meeting at the u.n. today? >> well the united nations has discussed north korea in the past in the context of nuclear nonproliferation, expressing
6:11 pm
concern over north korea's nuclear program but this is first time it's taken the country to task over its human rights violations. this comes on the heels of a commission report that was a scathing report that found many systematic abuses coming from the top levels of government putting the military above, feeding the people for example, torture, no due process. rape in prison camps, i mean just a laundry list of really horrific things that the u.n. found in its report on north korea. and so the security council at the recommendation of the general assembly took up this issue. the general assembly has asked the security council to refer north korea to the international criminal court and impose sanctions. that did not happen. china would not agree to something that extreme. it has a relationship with north korea. but just the fact that the security council took up the issue and discussed it, is
6:12 pm
certainly an embarrassment for north korea which has criticized the report and a sign of just how seriously they are taking this issue in north korea. >> kristin saloomey reporting from the united nations, thank you. meanwhile sony says it still plans to distribute the movie "the interview" after cancelling its christmas day debut for the movie. the company is considering how best to distribute the movie. tunisia inspired the arab spring four years ago. it's taking its first steps towards democracy with its elections. baji essebsi has won with 54% of the vote. >> declaration of beji essebsi,
6:13 pm
closely contested race, seems ting expenditure a larger gap that was expected, between the 88-year-old veteran and the interim president moncef el maz marzouki. all the political parties so far including the islamist party, didn't really put their full weight behind any specific candidates have been calling on people to remain calm, this is a moment that people should be joyful, that the teun tunisian e have demonstrated the ability to transition towards democracy, they should all join in celebration because they say this is cause for joy.
6:14 pm
it's also important to note that not only is this the first time that tunisians have elected president democratically but it's also the first time in the arab world's entire history that there has been a democratic transition of power between one president to another. tunisia for another time sets the agenda in the arab world as it did in 2011 with the uprising that rooiveld th removed the dik then. >> i.s.i.l, kurdish forces report taking sniper fire from i.s.i.l. fighters. they responded with machine guns missiles and antiaircraft fire. taking back territory seized by i.s.i.l. over the summer. on the outskirts, peshmerga fighters have been able to reach many trapped on the sinjar

6:20 pm
>> importer of goods if russia falls we could see a major ripple effect within economies of the european union and the united states, and that could affect growth all across the world. >> of course there are sanctions from the west against russia and the goal of those sanction he were to get russia to a certain level of diplomatic agreement over several issues but you say those sanctions should be lifted at this point? >> not lifted but ease i.t. right now. the main part of sanctions are for russian banks to buy and sell dollars. dollars are the life blood of the economy. if you are not able to buy and sell them you cause collapse over the sirch different sector. roznef cannot service this debt because it cannot access the u.s. market.
6:21 pm
if it ask not do that it defaults. that ripples across the sector. >> alexi kudro is a respected russian minister, he said the country is headed for a full blown economic crisis. ask that a dire warning or they're at a tipping point almost? >> absolutely. if right now these sanctions are not eased and banks cannot access the dollar market we could see them defaulting. and we see it also through people taking out loans. there are a lot of russian citizens who have taken out loans in dollars. and so basically their payments are doubled. and so those people will default on their loans, which ripples to u.s. banks and to russian and french and italian banks who have lent them this money and with worldwide growth being so low as it is, any kind of impact like that, italian or french
6:22 pm
bank could cause panic across the system. >> sanade told us, it could influence the u.s. led coalition to do the same. federal agencies investigating the cyber attack against sony pictures have their eyes trained on north korea. but looking at the possibilities of other countries who may have played a role. david schuster is in for ali velshi. what can you tell us about the cyber warfare infrastructure? >> a little bit stronger, they have a lot more infrastructure than people realize. even though north korea is dark when it comes to an internet, a 3g network is provided by china and the speeds are quite fast. you look at this 3g network which goes into pyongyang, a lot of people can get access that way. on top of it all north korea has access to 5,000 people who are essentially on the north korean
6:23 pm
payroll who are trained in place like china and russia and trained in the art of understanding cyber warfare and how to carry out attacks like these. another response to north korea might include going after some of these sites in china and russia and somehow trying to launch cyber attacks there to stop the training facilities where the north koreans are able to gain all this knowledge. >> the belief was that north korea was cut off from the internet but it turns out they have more infrastructure than we realize. what else on "real money" tonight? >> a project that aims to rival the panama canal. investors have teamed up with nicaragua to build a canal for trade. there are a lot of people who are being displaced by this project and some questions in nicaragua about how the chinese

got such favorable terms. we'll look at that. also the price of oil, the saudi defense minister said today they're fine to allow the prices to drop as low as $20 a barrel. what that could do for fracking and the price per gallon they might pay at the pump. >> there's definitely a link. david schuster, coming up with "real money" at the top of the hour. prices closing just over $55 a barrel when saudi ministers said they would not lower the amount they produce. but soon the price will go back up they say. >> petroleum ministers gathered at a time when oil prices have taken a dive hitting their national budgets hard.
6:25 pm
saudi arabia and the united arab emirates said they are confident the market will stabilize soon and other energy ministers said reducing output wouldn't help. >> there is a lot of surplus in the market and so therefore the supply is much, much greater than the demand. so i think the approach by opec is a very wise one. >> exporters from opec represent only around 40% of the world's oil production. saudi and the united arab emirates ministers have blamed those outside of the block and are acting irresponsibly. two of the biggest oil producers are not members of opec, the united states and russia. but a refusal by opec to drop its current supply of oil at around 30 million barrels of day could hurt other countries, even those inside iraq, oil revenues
6:26 pm
to help fund its fight against islamic state of iraq and the levant, it has been forced to become much more efficient. >> when you reduce your income it will affect, this is the negative side of it. but the positive side of it that we are reducing a lot of unnecessary costs. >> another positive says abdel mahdi is exporting from kirkuk. >> so kirkuk is functioning once again. >> but not everyone is suffering from the cut in oil prices. jordan says it's saving millions in energy cost because diesel and oil is cheap tore import. >> -- cheaper to import. >> i think we have saved about 45 million jds. >> the long term foreign investment in his country by big oil producers like saudi and the united arab emirates may be affected. and it's the long term that's so difficult to predict.

>> welcome back to al jazeera a, i'm michael eaves. new york city mayor bill deblasio is trying to ease tensions. asking the protests against police put on hold until after the officers are put to rest. tom ackerman has more. >> at a makeshift sidewalk memorial hundreds of people paid respect to the fallen officers, shot while on duty. by ismaaiyl brinsley, two unarmed black men killed in missouri and new york this year have become symbols of injustice for protesters across the u.s. but new york mayor bill deblasio's statements in support of the protests, its members have accused him of
6:31 pm
hostility after stoking flames of dissense against him. >> how do we sowrt them? i would ask that any organizations that were planning events or gatherings that are about politics and protests, that could be for another day. >> the city's police commissioner said racial tensions have grown sparked by the social media's attention to alleged police brutality. >> one concerns at the moment is this issue has started to go down partisan lines, republican, democrat, this is something that should keep us together rather than taking us apart. >> its efforts to reign in excesses. >> we need to have conversations about how policing can be done effectively, how we can have community policing going forward but we need to also at the same time protect our law enforcement personnel.
6:32 pm
>> but more protests were planned in milwaukee after officials decide he not to indict a policeman for shooting down a black man with a history of mental illness. violent threats none of them seem to be credible. the lathest tensions overshadow the fact that the u.s. has seen a sharp decline in police brutality created by protesters. >> i spoke to lee brown and i asked him if he thought antipolice rhetoric were the cause of this violence. >> we are talking about a person with mental problems. it becomes clear when you take your own life, and shoot two innocent police officers, by the way, let me express my
6:33 pm
condolences, to the families of the police officers and the members of the police department who lost their co-workers. if you see something occur like just happened in staten island, i'm sorry in new york city, it's a problem with the individual, who i would guess has some mental problems. you just don't go kill your -- shoot your ex girlfriend, she didn't die as i understand it, kill two innocent police officers at a he didn't know and then kill himself without having something mentally wrong with you. >> all the precincts in new york city have been placed on high alert, two uniformed police officers are guarding each precinct outside in full view of the public. now new york city is a war time police department and will act accordingly. what is your opinion of that term and also that plan of attack? >> i'm not sure what i mean --
6:34 pm
what he means by war time police department. but the new york city police department is managed by the police commissioner. he's the one who makes the decision about the nature of policing in that -- in that city. i can understand the police uniounion concern. i used to be a police commissioner in my younger days, i've been a mayor, i understand the vantage point, everyone must be enraged by the zless killing of the two new york city police officers. i'm not sure what he means by the militarization of the police department. they must carry on the business of the city. they must go to work and conduct themselves at a manner that is higher level than anyone else because more is expected of them
6:35 pm
by the oath they take to uphold the law and serve the people of the city of new york. >> mr. brown when you were commissioner of the nypd david dinkins was the mayor of new york. as bill deblasio is facing today, he faced at that time, in 1992, the criticism of the individual officers and the police unions. in particular, the police unions had dinkins desire to, streets of new york on a regular basis trying to advocate change within the new york police department. it's very ironic in a sense that we have a central issue that goes back a couple decades to when you were commissioner and here today in 2014. >> i think that the answer is not in a police reviewing board. i think -- review board. i think the answer is in the method by which the people, the
6:36 pm
police officer carry out their business. when i was the police commissioner of new york we implemented a concept of policing that we call community policing. briefly defined it's a partnership. underline the word partnership between the police and the people in the city to do three things. number one, to prevent crime. number two, to arrest those who commit crimes and number three, to solve problems. to improve the quality of life in neighborhoods. i strongly believe that what happens prior to an incident will determine what happens during and after an incident. if community policing had been the dominant style of policing in new york city, i think many of these problems could be avoided. so i would be a strong advocate for any agency, implementing the concept of community policing because you bring into the policing efforts not just the police department but the people that they serve. >> our thanks to former nypd
6:37 pm
commissioner lee brown. the largest ever fine imposed by the united states for bribery. the french firm alstom will pay $772 million on charges that it bribed american officials. >> altogether alstom paid millions of dollars in bribes, to secure approximately $300 million in profits for themselves. such rampant and flagrant wrongdoing demands an appropriately strong law enforcement response. >> the company will plead guilty to foreign practices act, often investigating companies that merely have a branch in the u.s. >> fracking the controversial

6:40 pm
>> water rights in california in that it's not regulated by the state. >> shouldn't the regulatory agency be regulating and having oversight over that? >> if the legislature gives us the authority to go ahead and look at that we surely would. >> you can't act without the legislature? >> we can't tell people they can't purchase water without statute riz construct. >> i think it's -- taughtary construct. >> a nonprofit working to ban fracking in california. >> water is such a scarce commodity right now that many communities are struggling to find ways to keep their faucets going keeping their farms irrigated and in these times we can't afford to be wasting water on such a dangerous process like fracking. >> you think it's okay that they're using so much water when everyone else is asked to conserve?
6:41 pm
>> from my position as a regulator we can't tell them how many water they can use. >> then you're not regulating. >> that's not true. >> 11 fracking bills were proposed, one was passed, sb 4, it goes into effect in 2015, and although it calls for some oversight, it will not limit the amount of water oil companies can use, even though california struggles with the largest water crisis ever. >> we have to start as citizens and stand up for our rights and say, it's enough already, it's enough. >> not only does fracking use millions of gallons of water, but creates gallons of chemicallying contaminated water. we take viewers to california's
